The Casemates
tourist attraction in luxembourg, tourist attraction luxembourg" Casemates tourist attraction luxembourg is listed in UNESCO World Heritage site. The underground fortifications date back to 1644 and are known as the Bock Casemates. Originally 14 miles of underground defensive passageways, some as deep as 131 feet, the casemates have earned the title of “Gibralter of the North.” The casemates are a web of defensive passageways that helped build Luxembourg’s impressive military reputation. The first underground tunnels were built in 1644, in the era of Spanish domination. The
23-kilometre-long galleries were enlarged forty years later by Vauban, the French military engineer and fortress builder, and in the 18th century by the Austrians. The subterranean defensive passages were placed on different levels and reached down as far as 40 metres. It is these impressive defense works that caused Luxembourg to get the name "Gibraltar of the North." After the dismantling of the fortress in 1867, 17 kilometres of the casemates were spared and left in good condition. This tourist attraction in luxembourg has been open to the public since 1933 and provides good opportunity to glance at the history of the country
